Table 3

Age standardised death rates (per 1000) in non-diabetic people with and without cataract, stratified by sex. The age adjusted hazard ratios are from Cox proportional hazards regression models, values greater than 1.0 indicating excess mortality in people with cataract (that is, mortality in cataract cases = hazard ratio × mortality in people without cataract)
